Originated in the 1970s, Vodka Rigatoni is an American-Italian fusion dish, with spicy and sharp flavours. What makes this dish very interesting is the vodka used to make the sauce.

Vodka rigatoni is prepared with a rich tomato sauce that uses vodka as an emulsifier; don’t worry! The alcohol evaporates while cooking, leaving behind a sharp acidic flavor. This sauce might not get you drunk, but it does make your mouth water with just its aroma.
